I recently decided to give working with kydex a go. In my efforts to train myself in the craft I have so far only made 5 sheaths for various objects, everything from a Klein cable knife to a pair of needle nose vice grips. Nothing near my workbench is guaranteed to be safe from the kydex press. LOL

Anyway this is what I came up with for my coin popping screwdriver.

That looks great Lardactyl! If the eylete holes are on 3/4 centers you can mount a Teklok right on there. There is some leather textured Holstex now that would give a traditional look too, working with it is the same as kydex. I just built this gear for a buddy in it.

That's a good looking holster. I actually have a bit of Holstex on order.
The holes on the screwdriver sheath are spaced 1.5" on center so the Teklok fits nicely. In fact I just installed a Teklok on the sheath getting ready to go out in the yard and get one more hunt in for 2016.
